Dr. William T. Regenold is a board certified general and geriatric psychiatrist. Dr. Regenold earned his medical degree from the McGill University Faculty of Medicine in Montréal. He interned in medicine, neurology and psychiatry at Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center in Baltimore and completed his psychiatry residency training at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore and Maudsley Hospital in London. He came to the NNU in 2019 after working for 24 years at the University of Maryland School of Medicine in Baltimore where he served as Director of the Division of Geriatric Psychiatry, the Geriatric Psychiatry Fellowship, the Adult Inpatient Service, and the Electroconvulsive Therapy Service for the Department of Psychiatry.
As Medical Director, Dr. Regenold is involved in all of the NNU’s research studies. His particular research interests are in the pathophysiology of mood disorders especially related to brain energy metabolism; nutritional, medical and neurologic aspects of psychiatric disorders; the mechanisms of the therapeutic and adverse effects of electroconvulsive therapy (ECT), and the improvement and individualization of noninvasive brain stimulation therapies for major depression including ECT and repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS).
